Dougherty County- A body, pulled from the Flint River Friday night, has been identified as 43-year old Leroy Jefferson, Junior of Albany. He had been missing for more than a month.

Preliminary autopsy results show Jefferson drowned. Fishermen spotted a body in the river near Plant Mitchell Friday afternoon. Around 11:00PM, police pulled the decomposed body from the river and sent it to the crime lab in Atlanta.

The description matched that of Jefferson who was reported missing on January 24th by his family. Police Chief Don Cheek says there were no signs of foul play.
